    Nah I have chatted to an audiologist about my levels, they are fin (especially when I wear my earbuds) and I am always wary of how much I push the amp

    I'm sure there a few of my vintage on here who have experienced the same type of setup
    We had a drummer we worked with for years who ended up using one side of a double four way as him fill monitor. For the youngsters who grew up with modular bins, a double (or triple) four way was pretty much the standard PA used in pubs in the mid/late 80's.

    2 (or 3) x W Bins
    2 x 45/70 bins
    2 x horns
    2 x rings

    on each side of the stage.

    We fed them with various amps usually ~500 to 600w per level per side. Indoors.

    *shudder* so much sh*t to lug in and out.

    No wonder so many of us greet each other with the phrase "huh, what did you say?"!

    Four year apprenticship as a Boilermaker and helloooooo industrial deafness..
    It has come in handy though, I use it as an excuse to not hear the Minister for War and Finance yammering at me about jobs I havent done around the house..

    There is always a workaround for glitches, mistakes and other Guitar building gremlins.....

    In 1998 I was dropped 50ft. by a crane at work. Crushed both of my heals, lung collapsed twice, and nearly tore my left arm completely off, severing all the nerves in my arm. I thought my playing day's were over. I even thought of asking the misses to take my gear to the basement so I wouldn't have to look at it and be depressed. Instead, I decided to use the guitar as a sort of physical therapy. I still have no feeling in my hand, but I can play by looking at the guitar. I have written and recorded over 100 songs since then and people still like to hear me play. Where there's a will, there's a way. Just saying.

    I've sustained some hearing damage having worked in my dad's workshop as an apprentice fitter and machinist, my right ear is worse than my left due to having a tropical-ear infection in it when I was younger, I also suffer from tinnitus in both ears too.


    I also get sinus trouble at certain times of the year, which tends to play havoc with my hearing.

    Steve, you must be quite lucky to survive the fall, luckily you landed on your legs and even though you broke both heels, it is much better than landing on your torso or head...

    Nomis, damn, hearing must be difficult for you, especially when recording!
